The Gutsy Group

Having suffered gut issues my entire life, I was diagnosed with Crohn's in September 2019. Crohn's is a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), in which an over active immune system attacks your GI tract.

This can lead to complications such as chronic inflammation, abdominal pain and bloating, ulcers, tissue damage, malnutrition, diarrhoea and constipation, fatigue... the list goes on!

Unfortunately there is no cure of Crohn's - and, for me, that just won't fly! So I've decided to to raise funds for The Gutsy Group.

The Gutsy Group Foundation is a ‘not for profit’ organisation dedicated to raising funds for medical and scientific research into the cause, prevention, management and cure of IBD. Each year they select a project to fund over a 3 year period. One such project they're currently involved with is investigating IBD in pregnant women, something close to my heart given I will be in this position at some point down the track.

Together I hope we can further support these projects, to (hopefully) find a cure in the future, improve treatment options and better understand the disease. Thanks on behalf of myself and the other 85,000 IBD sufferers around Australia!
